5.4 Okay
Pros: I stayed at this hotel because it had an indoor pool & hot tub. What they don’t tell you is that you have to go outside to get to the indoor pool & hot tub. I wouldn’t have paid as much as I did if I had known that.
Cons: It had a water view. Even tho it was off season the view was very nice & we slept listening to the waves.
7.5 Good
Pros: The staff was friendly and courteous...good complimentary breakfast....
Cons: The property is in need of a big refresh...
4.0 Okay
Pros: ok location
Cons: the hotel had a terrible smelly odor
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful rooms with a even better view! Staff was super friendly and ready to help! Breakfast was fantastic and I loved that we could bring it back to our room (my husband enjoys sleeping in and would sometimes miss it so it was nice to bring him a plate). The view was the best part of the entire trip!
Cons: More elevators on each end of the building.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great location
5.0 Okay
Pros: Location to attractions.
Cons: The price is simply outrageous.
6.0 Good
Pros: Location
Cons: Hotel staff could have been more accommodating with room location. Fire alarm next door was placed outside the door and beeped all night long because batteries were low, this should be on a schedule.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Lakeview and balcony
Cons: wish it would have a microwave
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Hotel is close to the shopping area and also the boats that go to Mackinaw Island. The breakfast buffet was very good with hot entrees; eggs, sausage, waffles and oatmeal.
Cons: We spent 2 nights at the hotel and it was very windy outside. Our room door #301 will poorly fitted to the frame of the door and the wind whistled through the door. I stuffed some papers around the door to stop the whistling.
8.5 Excellent
Pros: The breakfast was good. The location was prime for travel to the island, equidistant to each of the docks for the two major ferry lines. The room was nice, the staff was very helpful and knowledgeable of the area.
Cons: I don't like that the pool wasn't accessible without a trip outside. It was still cool enough outside that that was a deterrent from bringing my young kids to the pool. The layout was only ok for things like the breakfast location and pool location; they very much have the appearance that they were add-ons after the original building was completed. I also had an issue with our toilet not wanting to flush. The maintenance response was quick and efficient, but later in our stay it appeared as though the fix wasn't complete.
6.3 Good
Pros: Location was great, loved the view that we had from our room. Everything was in walking distance, so it was perfect spot to choose.
Cons: Parking was horrible. I wished the staff would have supervised that a bit, people parked there that shouldn't have and guest that parked there made there own spots, which made it hard to park in the small spots that were available. Beds were super uncomfortable and the sheets were dirty when we arrived. There was hair all over my pillow case, dog/cat hair and other hair. We came to see the city, so the room, of course, was not the main attraction, but it was still a place we needed to stay and relax and that was a little disappointing.
3.0 Mediocre
Pros: Hotel is in great location, staff was really nice & helpful.
Cons: Room was clean on the eye but was damp, smelled like mold & extremely old looking, like is has not been remodeled since the 70's

2.0 Mediocre
Pros: The front desk staff was rather friendly.
Cons: All the lights in our room (446) flickered, every single one. We had half a roll of toilet paper in our room and no extras. Not having an elevator to the 4th floor is extremely inconvenient for dragging luggage up and down (with no prior heads up from hotel or website when I booked). Not enough parking space. Weve stayed here before and were okay with our stay, but this time was less than exceptional and we will be booking elsewhere in the future.
2.5 Mediocre
Pros: Didn’t go. Something happened during booking process and dates got processed incorrectly.......
10.0 Excellent

5.1 Okay
Pros: The rooms were quite clean.
Cons: I get that lodging in Mackinaw City is hard to come by on summer weekends, but this was way too expensive for what we got. The hotel wi-fi was nonfunctional, presumably because our room was too far from the single router in the office. If I ever stay in Mackinaw City again, I'll be sure to make reservations farther ahead of time.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This vintage motel was big & roomy. I'm not sure if it has always been this well-maintained, or if it was restored during a renovation... It looks "old" but it feels / smells / seems new. It was like being in a time warp, except the beds and water pressure were better, there was a fridge, and we couldn't hear the neighbors! The owners were on-site, helpful, and friendly. My husband and I are 60s and 70s kids, so we thought it was fabulous!
Cons: Honestly, there is nothing I did not like about this place. We're DEFINITELY staying here again on our next trip north; I'm not even shopping around!

Cons: Breakfast was very good and well-stocked. However, it would have ben nice to have some yogurt and more healthy food options as , by now, I was really tired of the usual free-breakfast fare of waffles, eggs, sausage, biscuits & gravy. I had been eating this same fare for 2 weeks and was ready for something different. I heard some other people complaining of not having any yogurt too.

Pros: It was going to be late before we got there so we called to let them know that and we were going to only stay 1 night instead of 2. They said I'd have to pay for both nights but if I cancel I'd only have to pay for 1 night. I said paying for 1 night would be better then paying for no night and I told him that the second day we were going to the locks but the weather was going to be in the low 40's and we changed our minds. He said that was too bad but would still have to pay. He didn't want to work with us at all so we stayed else where in mackinaw for 1 night and enjoyed our day.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: cute room
Cons: bathroom door and walls were dirty
5.0 Okay
Pros: The room we stayed in was super clean and when we switched to a handicap room it was done without a problem. We don't consider ourselves to be handicap but the toilets are set so low it makes it impossible for "old" knees to operate.
Cons: Our only problem as stated above was with the bathrooms. Even the handicap had a low toilet but it at least had hand rails to help. We really like your hotel and try to stay there every year when on color tour. But the older we get the harder it gets.
10.0 Excellent
Cons: When we arrived upon check in we were informed the room we booked online was not and they wanted to give us a different for the same amount, which if we would if boomed the standard room it would have been less. As we are discussing this with the employee (Andre Brown) he called his manager(Rick Brown) and as they were discuss Andre was laughing being very disrespectful toward us. When they refused to give us the room at the lesser rate we discussed canceling altogether. While still in the process of discussing with Andre, Andre claims our reservation had been canceled. As we continued to discuss miss this matter he now calls a female to discuss and she tells us they don’t have any vacancies what so ever. I ask her what about the room that we were they to check in for? She finally agreed that room is vacant bit is not the standard rate. The final outcome basically was that we could not get the room we reserved at a higher price (standard room price was available when we made reservation) for standard fee so they agreed there would be no cancelation fee but could not get that on paperwork. Rick the manager wouldn’t even get on phone with me to discuss. He made Andre do it all even after I requested to speak with the manager directly. I feel we were treated disrespectful and that didn’t even want to negotiate with us. It was there way or no way. I am not sure I would ever consider booking at this location again.
